This producer feels that a good alternative to tobacco is to plant short- and long-term high-value crops in rotation. She will plant sweet potatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, eggplants as annual crops. Pecans, apples, peaches, figs, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries will be grown as long-term crops. She also intends to plant annual cover crops using hairy vetch, crimson clover and rye for weed control, organic matter and beneficial insect habitat.
